You got that right...

Mr. Gibbons lived part time in a Deep Ellum loft from 1994 to 2007. And at the dawn of the
'70s, Mr. Hill bought his prized 1952 Fender bass Telecaster at the long-gone Rocky's Pawn
Shop on Elm Street.
"There it was on the wall, this great guitar," Mr. Hill remembers. "I immediately turned it
over to Billy because he negotiates better than I, and he got a really good price and made
the guy throw in the case, too."


Now try and imagine what Fender is paying him for endorsements.

The whole "high priced relic" thing is just outta hand.

What comes next?
Maybe a bass that doesn't work...
or something like this:
We've neglected and abused this instrument for you to the point where it's nearly unplayable!
You'll get randomly placed, pre worn frets which have very little life left in them
and with the one piece, faux rusted solid saddle adjustments,
our patented Maxed Out Truss Rod Neck has been both twisted and bowed to compensate for this!
We've even added the scratchy pots,
an intermittent input jack,
vibrating tuner key
and miss-matched spinning strap buttons
to assure that you've got an instant High School Band Room classic!

Makes sense. I don't think these are for players anyway.
Which reminds me; have I shared this here?

According to the Custom Shop web site, it comes with a 'polishing cloth'. That looks like it will come in handy. [smilie=fun_84.gif]

Nolabass actually played one and fell in lust with it. Don't do it....

Mines cheap as hell: maybe $300, but I had a lot of parts sitting around.
